I like doing flamacues alot and switching between single, double and triple paradiddles with changing accents. Lots a fun.

I also like the pataflafla cause of the name and cause it is pretty fun to play. Heh.

Obscure-land

8 stroke continuous roll

RllrrllR LrrllrrL

Start with groupings of 5

12345 22345

Play alternating strokes w/accent on first and last of each grouping

RlrlR LrlrL

then double the in-between notes.
R llrrll R L rrllrr L

Sounds like a "swung dotted", and actually is notated as a dotted figure.

Oh and PS- this sticking easily translates into a "Para diddle-diddle-diddle".

I've gottin so used to doing straight alternating fives...RlrlrLrlrlRlrlrLrlrl....I'll have to slow this one down at 1st, but I like the acents..!!

As far as the fours with double strokes, they seem like they would work well with crossovers..I have to try that when I get a chance..!!

Swiss army triplets. It's an overlapped double stroke roll, so it's like two rudiments in one. I love the way they sound really fast and you can play around with them and make lots of different phrases out of them.
